Right folks I'm still pretty new to road riding and as such have a grand total of zero items of clothing suitable for going out in so I'm after a basic list of bits I should pick up to get me started?
Trying to keep the budget low as I'm a bit skint, will need a new helmet as I don't wanna be out and about in my pisspot I use for trials so any cheap recommendations for that are welcomed also and at some point relatively soon I'll get some clipless pedals and shoes.
i'd have to say get some reasonable lycra shorts - you can get away with t-shirts very easily, but the shorts are a must-have in my opinion. I think you can get polaris shorts fairly cheap from various places.
The rest, well - collect stuff as you need/see it cheap.
personally I tend to go more for the more casual/relaxed/touring-y type clothing - basically because I'm n racer and like stuff i can use for both mountain biking and road riding.
